PyCharm 2018.3 is now available: Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) support, multiline TODOs, improved search everywhere, and more.
New in PyCharm
- For those of you on Windows who are developing applications that run on Linux: Windows Subsystem for Linux is a quick and easy way to always have a Linux environment available. PyCharm 2018.3 can now be configured to use a Python interpreter inside WSL.
- One of the most-requested features in our issue tracker were multiline TODOs, and we’re happy to announce that these are now available in PyCharm 2018.3.
- Even though search everywhere (double-shift) is not at all a new feature, we’ve made some great usability improvements, and now it’s easy to see how you can narrow down the results.
To get the new version of PyCharm, upgrade in one of the following ways:
- Download the new version
- Choose Help | Check for Updates in PyCharm
- Use JetBrains Toolbox to upgrade
- If you’re using Ubuntu, or any other distro that supports snap, PyCharm will automatically update using snap (if you’ve installed PyCharm with snap).
